FAQ

Are your clients doctors only?

Even though the majority of our clients are doctors, we represent a diversity of professionals during tax return season (CEO, employees, retired person, independent workers, engineers, consultants, accountants, other healthcare professionals etc.)

Is incorporation still possible for physicians in Quebec?

Yes. Despite the last budget modifications and what the media headlines claimed, it is still possible to incorporate in Quebec.

As a physician, when can I incorporate my practice?

As soon as you have earned your first incomes as an independent worker. Incorporation can be done at anytime during the year, it does not have to follow the calendar year.

What are the main deductible expenses for a practising doctor or an incorporated one?

Professional subscriptions, Medical Liability Protection (MLP) reimbursement program, invoicing agency fees, training fees and congress, office fees (private clinics), IT equipment (including Up-to-date software), books, professional fees related to services rendered (including accounting fees for tax return).

As an independent worker or as an incorporated physician, can I deduct my car fees from my professional expenses?

Expenses allocated to a car for trips between your home and your main place of practice cannot be deducted. If you work in several premises, an expense related to your travelling (car or other) can be deducted.

Can an incorporated physician deduct more professional expenses than a non-incorporated physician?

The only additional expense is the one allocated to the home office, since the criterion determining the deductible character of an asset are more flexible for corporations than for individuals.

What is the deadline to complete our tax return if my wife/husband and I are independent workers ?

The deadline is June 15th. However, you have to settle your income tax balance before April 30th. It is then better to complete your tax return before this date. An interesting strategy could be to pay an estimate amount of taxes on April 30th, that will be considered as an instalment on account when you do your tax return.

What should I do if I receive a notice of assessment that is different from your calculations?

Forward us your notice of tax assessment via e-mail, to the following address: vstarnaud@paulrioux.qc.ca, or by fax at 514-875-5206.
We will investigate the situation and get back to you with an explanation.

Do I need to provide you the original version of my documents for you to prepare my tax return?

It is important to know that tax returns are supplied electronically, so we do not need to send any documents supporting the tax declaration. Therefore, we can complete your tax return with copies of your documents, scanned pages, excel tables, bank statements, as well as hand-written notes.

However, you must provide the original documents, invoices and statements during government auditing (electronic versions are accepted).

How long do we need to keep the tax return documents for?

Supporting documents and registers have to be kept for six years after the last taxation year they are relating to.
